Each quarter when I start a round of Back to Basics, I get really excited because as I’m coaching the group, I’m also participating in the lessons with my students. One of the things that we start with is goals. Where do we want to be in 90 days?
This last quarter hits a little differently for me. It’s a season that personally, I’m more excited for than I have been in about two years. As I was thinking about my goals for this last quarter, I kept thinking about what I really want to focus on. What would increase my success this quarter not only as a coach but as a wife, a mother and all the other hats I wear?
For most of 2020, I was pregnant so while my health was a priority, it was more about my son and his health. I ate to give the baby the adequate nutrition he needed. He was born in November of last year and I’ve spent the last 11 months breastfeeding so all my nutrition has still been about him. I didn’t drink alcohol, didn’t take certain supplements or essential oils, avoided or increased certain foods. But now, he’s weaned himself and I finally feel like I have my body back to myself!! In all transparency, there’s a ridiculous amount of guilt and mind games that go with that as well that I don’t think is talked about near enough but maybe another day we’ll get into that.
I decided my focus is going to be on my health, for no other reason than it just being for me and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I have set my nightly regiment to include a concoction of oils that I use as a moisturizer to help with aging:
1 oz. roller bottle
5 drops frankincense
5 drops lavender
3 drops geranium
2 drops rose or rose hip oil
Fill the rest of the way with argan oil or grapeseed oil.
I use the argan oil in the winter when my skin is a lot more dry, grapeseed for the months when I need something a little lighter.
Put the roller filament on top and roll a generous amount on your face and decollete area. I like to use a jade roller or rose quartz roller over these areas as well.
Before I was pregnant, I used to do a castor oil pack on my liver a couple times a week. I wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you’ve worked it out with a naturopathic dr. If you need one, I would absolutely recommend mine! She is the smartest person I’ve ever met and the most gifted doctor!! You can find her here. The castor oil packs on my liver gave me energy, helped my body detox better and improved my overall liver health!
I drank tea every night before bed. I did HIIT workouts 3-4 times a week. Occassionally, I boxed. These are the things that I have missed so dearly and can’t wait to get back to. I can’t wait to see how I can transform with my students in the next 6 weeks!
Of course, I have goals in the areas of spirituality, family and friends, career and fun as well but the important thing to remember when you’re setting your 90 day goals is that your main goal, the one that drives all others. It’s the one that should help set you up for success in all other areas of life.
What’s your goal for the last 90 days of 2021? How are you going to set yourself up for success so you’re not looking back in October of 2022 saying “Man, I sure wish I would’ve started a year ago.”?
